Venus Bay dominates at Masters Championships!
The Victorian Surf Lifesaving Masters Championships were held at Lorne on February 3rd, 2018 and the team from Venus bay exceeded all expectations. The team of 13 competitors and a further six support crew medalled in 34 events, making it the most successful competition event in the club's 56 year history.
Tom Goode (72) won five medals, and Kimberley Gee and Kristie Clappison won 18 medals between them. In the men's 34-39 category Venus Bay won the trifecta in the beach flags and beach sprint with Elliot Amalos, Simon Gee, and Russell Stewart all medalling.
Venus Bay Surf Lifesaving Club President Craig Watson said; "It's just another step on our journey to becoming a better club. We have record membership and on the back of our National Club of the Year the next logical step was to be more competitive in Surf Sports. We already have an incredibly successful Nippers Competition Team and we are really bookending that with the Masters Group."
Venus Bay Surf Lifesaving Club finished sixth overall at the championships, finishing ahead of more fancied teams including Portsea, Anglesea, St Kilda and host club Lorne.
